O2 signs deal with BT for iPhone Wi-Fi access

O2 today announced a deal with BT Openzone that will give iPhone users access to more than 3,000 BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots as part of their monthly tariff.

The addition of BT Openzone to O2’s existing arrangement with The Cloud will bring the total available public Wi-Fi hotspots for iPhone customers to over 9,000.

O2 UK CEO Ronan Dunne said: ‘By working with partners like BT Openzone we can maximise the web experience for iPhone customers.

‘Public Wi-Fi hotspots ideally complement our mobile network, providing high speed web browsing and unlimited access to services like the iTunes Wi-Fi store in a wide variety of convenient locations.’

Both the iPhone and new iPhone 3G automatically choose the fastest network available and will switch to Wi-Fi when the customer enters either a Cloud or BT Openzone hotspot.

BT Openzone is available at 13 BT wireless city centres, coffee shops, railway stations, airport lounges, motorway service stations and marinas.
